Video: Previewing the Yankees-Twins series

2 Comments

This morning I recorded a Yankees-Twins series preview with Ted Berg for SNY and it’s a slow news day here at Hardball Talk, so why not watch it …



New York and Minnesota are tied for the second-best record in baseball at 22-12, so it should be a good series. I’m actually feeling oddly optimistic about the Twins’ chances despite their being 16-50 against the Yankees under Ron Gardenhire.

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
